Newsbusters ^ | September 14, 2009 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 09/14/2009 9:15:04 AM PDT by Rufus2007

The National Newspaper Publishers Association (NNPA), also known as the Black Press of America, which is a non-partisan 501(c) 3 tax-exempt organization, has decided to show its disapproval of South Carolina Rep. Joe Wilson's "You Lie" remarks by canceling a convention in the state.

"Rep. Wilson's remarks were racist, disrespectful and a disingenuous violation - not only of President Obama - but to the institution of the presidency and only solidified our position and the importance in not spending Black dollars where Black people are not respected," NNPA Chairman Danny J. Bakewell Sr. said in a statement.

“Black Press of America, which is a non-partisan...”

#####

Nope.

Not even close.

The biggest racists in America today are black.

Hands down.

Was Rep. Joe Wilson telling the truth about Barack Obama? Of course. ObamaCare will indeed cover illegals because there is no screening to weed out illegals.

South Carolina always has boycotts. It is no wonder that they have the largest unemployment in the United States (well they might be third now since two states have recently were higher). However, why South Carolina and not any other state is picked on is a mystery.

“Rep. Wilson’s remarks were racist, disrespectful and a disingenuous violation - not only of President Obama - but to the institution of the presidency and only solidified our position and the importance in not spending Black dollars where Black people are not respected”

How is calling a liar what he is, racist?

When did our nation start printing “black dollars?”

When will these people settle on what to call themselves, black or African American, PICK ONE.

Amazing. People who will be affected by that decision are more likely black business owners than Rep. Wilson. And calling the interjection ‘racist’ is just plain foolish.

These people are dumber than dirt. Even when they can draft their statement in their leisure they can't formulate an opinion that makes sense, much less blows spittle. So, disrespect of the office of the institution of the presidency is racist?

Thanks for validating that all the democrats who booed when George Bush spoke of rescuing SSI are racists. We knew it already but you validated it.

Anything against Obama is racist, just like why a black gets a job with inferior grades or experience over a white (AA) is perfectly legal.

Facts are not the primary driver, white guilt is.

LOL - NOW they want respect showed to the President of the United States. Where were they over the past 8 years of Bush Lied - People Died / ChimpieMcBushHitler / “George Bush doesn’t care about black people”. This selective outrage falls flat, especially considering that Obama DID lie and one brave soul had the ‘nads to call him on it.

So Joe Wilson's "You Lie" comment was racist, but having an organization for black press only isn't racist. Got it.

Well, FWIW I will be going back to N. Myrtle Beach next summer. The businesses in Barefoot Landing and the condo owners will be glad to earn their money from me. I’ll probably spend more than these cheapskates who are doing their “boycott” anyway. Piss on them.

Blatant Reverse Racism by a racist organization???

It is not racist to disagree with a black person.

But taking “black money” out of the equation does make the racism of disagreement the topic.

South Carolina was already under a boycott due to the Confederate flag on the capitol grounds.

They probably only booked the convention (if even they did that), so they could loudly unbook it in protest.

The Wilson thing came up, so they unbooked it.

They probably have it booked for every year in SC for the next 10 years, so every year they can get in a snit over something and unbook it again.

I just want to know when Black folks are going to stop killing people. Or at least when their leaders like Mr. Blackwell are going to notice how many black murderers are killing their own?

You cannot turn on the local news and not see an african american murderer.

You’re probably right. If they’d gone ahead with it, the NAACP would be all over them for breaking their useless “boycott” of South Carolina, which only seems to be observed by Democratic politicians and the fringiest of the black racist fringe. (And only ever seriously hurt black-owned businesses in the SC Lowcountry who specialized in tourism involving the rich post-slavery Gullah culture.)

Reminds me of a great lyric from the Five Chinese Brothers

And I wish we were married
So we could get divorced
Get over this loving stuff
Let nature take its course
You can’t choose who you love
Darling we’re the living proof
So we’ll ride this old landslide where it takes us
Headlong to the truth
